On Saturday 3rd of January, A very lucky Port Augusta man is 1.5 million dollars richer after winning a division one prize in the X Lotto Megadraw. The gentleman has been playing X Lotto each week for years and is said to have never won anything of substance. The generous local couldn’t allow himself to believe he had won until a X Lotto official confirmed it. He is lucky in many ways as the contact number on his card was expired. If he didn’t check the ticket; this could have remained a mystery for some time. The humble winner plans to donate a portion to charities close to his heart. The Royal Flying Doctors and local hospitals received a mention.
